As a cowardly farmer begins to fall for the mysterious new woman in town, he must put his new-found courage to the test when her husband, a notorious gun-slinger, announces his arrival.
1882, Albert Stark, a mild mannered sheep farmer living outside Old Stump, Arizona, hates everything about living in this time and place, especially the literally million of ways he and others can easily die every day without a care, from shootouts, to bar brawls, to bites by rattlesnakes hiding in outhouses, to affliction by any one of a number of untreatable plagues and pestilences. He is also not adept at shooting guns, which makes the death by shootouts even more likely, and is the reason why he cowers out of a shootout with someone to who he owes money. Although she states otherwise, the shootout is arguably the last straw for Louise, Albert’s vain girlfriend, who breaks up with him. Her it’s not you, it’s me reason rings false as she quickly starts up with mustachioed Foy, the wealthy owner of a mustache grooming products store, he who Albert knows he cannot compete in not being wealthy enough to be able to grow a groomed mustache. Albert is befriended by Anna, along with her brother Lewis who are new to Old Stump, and she who is self-admittedly smokin’ hot. Anna vows to help Albert with many issues in his life, most specifically in getting Louise back largely by pretending to be his girlfriend to make Louise jealous, and learning how to shoot in what ends up being a challenge to a shootout with Foy for Louise’s hand. As Albert and Anna start to fall for each other in the process, Anna has to decide if/when she will tell him the truth: that she is already married, albeit unhappily, to Clinch Leatherwood, a vicious outlaw who, along with his gang, she and Lewis are waiting for in Old Stump. Albert, in turn, has to decide when he will become a real man in doing what he needs for what, or who, he truly wants in life.
